Ward Family Portraits

We went up American Fork Canyon for our family portraits this year. Normally we have Scott Hancock take them, but this year we decided to try out the self timer and tripod. It was a team effort. We scouted out the spot, I would focus on Jory, then press self timer, run into the portrait and Jory would count. The portrait where Jory is holding me up in the air was all about timing! ;)

I love all of the yellow and green in the background! And you guys are always perfect picture subjects. You are so lucky to have a hubby that is patient enough to get his pic taken. Speaking of...we need ours done! Are you still willing? Call me this week. I'm home by 2pm MO time everyday. I just don't want to interrupt class, work, etc. Can't wait to see you! luv, luv!

The one where he is holding you is absolutely a blow-it -up and hang it on your wall picture. I love it! And, I agree . . . Jory's patience with pictures is a blessing. As long as I power through Jeff's reluctance, he's usually okay in the end - and always glad we did it (as our new front room pictures show)!! Now, I'm just waiting for it to snow so we can get more family pictures!

Whoever said that about the proffesional photographer thing is so wrongin the fact that you are a proffesional photographer and I could never get those shots even with a tripod and good timing... I swear I'd still miss it not to mention lighting and framing .... Yuck.... you're amazing Sher!
